Customers can now directly connect compatible Bluetooth hearing aids to their Fire TV Cube devices. Amazon says hearing aids can now connect with Fire TV at the system level, so users can not only enjoy audio from their favorite apps but also Alexa, music, navigational sounds, and more.

Here’s how you can pair your hearing aid with Fire TV:

  • Visit Fire TV Settings, Accessibility, and select Hearing Aids.
  • Now follow the on-screen instructions to connect them, much like you would with Bluetooth headphones.
  • To control the streaming volume, use the Fire TV remote like you otherwise would.
  • When you’re done with your movie, you can disconnect through a shortcut by pressing and holding the ‘Home’ button and selecting ‘Disconnect Hearing Aids.’

For an optimal experience, Amazon recommends customers connect over a 5Ghz wifi network, within 10 feet and in line of sight to the Fire TV Cube.
